Q: Which costs are reimbursed by REA in case of maternity and parental leave? (All Calls)
A: 1. If the national social security scheme pays 100% of the amount for maternity leave due under national legislation, the REA does not supplement it. 2. If the social security does not pay the full 100% of the amount due under the national legislation because the national legislation has envisaged that the employer covers part of the maternity pay, then the REA reimburses only the compulsory part paid by the employer. In this case, the documents asked for is an extract from the national legislation that stipulates the percentage the employer has to pay. 3. The REA does not pay the difference between the maternity benefit from the social security scheme and the Marie Curie rate. 4. If needed, it is up to REA's discretion to decide whether to increase the EU contribution or not. It very rarely happens and only when the circumstances would put the researcher on maternity leave at a great disadvantage.
